Galaxy Nexus ships in the UK
If you have the cash to spare
Google’s new Galaxy Nexus phone is already shipping in Britain, provided you are willing to sign a two-year plan.
Phones4u is offering the 16GB version on Vodafone or Orange, with prices starting at £31 a month and a £59 one-off payment. This amounts to £804 in two years, with 300 or 400 minutes of free talk time and 3,000 texts included in the price.
As for the continent, some retailers in Germany and Poland expect to have a few unlocked 16GB phones in stock in two to four days. The price stands at €539, which still sounds a bit pricey, but it’s not that bad looking at Samsung’s Galaxy Note, Motorola’s Droid RAZR or HTC’s Sensation XL, all of which cost more than €500.
